Hello friends!!! Welcome to my channel….In this video, You are going to watch and know about Baby care and Baby development between 4 and 6 month babies. I will also be sharing information about their brain development and emotional development during this growth phase. These developments which i am going to say are very general and basic developments during 4 to 6 month. Do not worry if your baby is not able to complete these milestones. Because, different babies grow in different pace. Definitely, there will be some delays in each development…No need to consult any doctors if your baby is not doing the milestones. Even doctors will ask parents to be patience and there is no medications for this. Babies will take their own time in growing…. One main thing every parent should do is giving oil massage before bath time. It will be very helpful for their growing bones and muscles.Massaging plays a vital role in babies completing their milestones. So, give oil massage for atleast 6 months. Now , Let us see the developments during 4th month Major development during 4th month is babies will be able to hold their head. For some babies, head will be a little shaky.So, Give support to head while lifting the baby. Their neck bones need to get more strong. Once their neck bones are strong, they will be able to hold their head without shaking. It will take time in some babies Support babies head while lifting. Babies head should be on shoulder till their neck bones are strong. Once their neck becomes strong, they will be able to turn around and look. Mostly, these developments will get delayed. So, there is no need to rush. They will be able to do on their own. Next major development is ” Rolling Over”. If your baby did not complete this in 3rd month, they will defeinitely complete “Rolling Over” in 4th month. They will become experts in ” Rolling Over”. They will be able to roll on both the sides. Some babies will turn and roll over either on left side or right side. This is completely normal No need to worry if your baby is rolling over only one side. Mostly babies will be able to hold their head only after ” Rolling Over”.After completing “Roll Over”, their muscles and bones will become very strong. Every development will take its time. Next development is Babies will start learning to suck their fingers. They will put all their fingers in mouth at once. They will soon start to find a perfect finger (Thumb) for sucking. Some babies will start sucking their toe fingers. These are absolutely normal and healthy… Do not try to discipline babies by removing fingers from their mouth. This is a learning process for them to develop skills… Some babies will complete rolling over in their 3rd month. These babies will be able to lift their chest with the help of arms and knees.You will be able to notice this development during the end of 4th month. Next thing is baby weight during 4th month Average weight should be around 5 to 5.5 kg. Average weight should be around 5 to 5.5 kg.

Doctors will advice on “what to give” and “what not to give”. Follow proper diet for you baby and next major thing during 4th month is Colic pain will be greatly reduced.
